Hi all,
I'm about to secure a mint condition korg pa3x 61 for 2500US, the listing is approx 300km from where I live, so if I do make the trip, I would most likely secure the purchase. So far my knowledge of the keyboard is via this forum and you tube samples.
Should I wait further or is this a reasonable deal?
Many thanks
Ky

I know Donny.. The T5 is lurking around the corner, however it would be roughly 4k on top I presume...

Have you looked at the Pa900, that has many of the features of the Pa3x? That would be an even better deal!

Great deal no question about it....................but timing is everything............T5.............PA900 also a good choice. I own the Pa3x-61 keyand have been very happy with it.

Now you've all thrown me out of whack.. I already have the T4, and really wanted to add a Korg range. So for almost the same price.. Is a pa900 worth considering over the pa3x?..are there more features on the 900?

Let's see, the OP asks a question about going to get a USED PA3X61 for $2500, and Donny suggests waiting for a new T5 costing at LEAST double the price...

Nice.

Full of practical advice, aren't we? LOL

Hi Kytrinh. You may not be aware of it, but Korgforums is the place to be for your questions.
http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpbb2/

Btw, way more features on the 3X. Hope this helps.

Thank you gents.. pa3x is locked in..
Will drive to Sydney tomorrow.
I know these questions are posted everywhere as a new arranger hits the market, but its a last minute decision and just needed reassurances and links to confirm.
Again, many thanks...

I love the PA3X! There will be learning curve, but stick with it. It will be well worth it.

Lots of support for the PA3X here on SZ and even more on Korg's forum.

Haven't played one for any real length of time, but what I did hear was very good indeed, especially the styles.

Also, it's received rave reviews here on SZ with nothing but positive comments.

Good luck, Ky.

Ian
